Hardware developers got too used to Youtubers giving a big smile and thumbs up no matter what kind of incomplete product they're handed. Protip: Only send out review models that actually fucking work properly.

Heh, good for Saturn then that there weren't youtubers around when it launched with its first OS ;-)

Since I don't see this posted yet, Evercade VS console (not a handheld) coming soon: https://evercade.co.uk/vs

Two cartridge slots is a unique choice.

I've pre-ordered the Founders Edition. Comes with the four recently released arcade collections, and the Intellivision and Bitmap Bros carts, so at £160 for the entire package it's a pretty sweet deal.

Since having to let my stuff go, I've got neither the time or money to devote to individual physical collections (current gen aside), this is an affordable halfway house for me. It's proving to be an interesting selection of games as well, the recent arcade carts have a great line-up and I'll definitely be having this. Shame the Bitmap Bros cart doesn't feature Amiga games rather than MD or whatever though, in fact, I'm wondering what version of the original Speedball they'll use - Master System? I've got the Piko one which features a few interesting titles (that NES Exploding Fist though..... :cry: ), and the Codemasters collection pre-ordered, probably end up picking up the Dizzy cart at some point.

Portably, it's probably getting used more than the Switch at the moment.

There does seem to be some nice stuff on this platform. I'm keeping my eye on the upcoming consolised version, hoping the thing accepts generic controllers so I can plug something else in for the arcade games (and if the controllers are as uncomfortable as they look). Working from home, the Switch doesn't get much handheld time anymore so not really into the handheld one.

Works with any generic USB controller / adaptor apparently. Controller seems to be the same d-pad and buttons as the handheld, which are pretty nice. Certainly a lot nicer to play than the Switch anyways.

VS User interface preview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyC-wHs6VP4

Looks like the VS will support full button mapping, which was the one thing that stopped me from buying the handheld.

Hopefully the older cartridges will still be reasonably obtainable when the VS launches.

Because they're so cheap, the compulsive part of me is screaming to pick them all up, despite some of them being a bit crap.
Also, it really, really annoys me that they're numbered. Because I store my shit alphabetically. But I can't here.

Hey, you're free to choose your own ordering system - just as long as you're consistent with it :lol:

There are a couple which I'd probably get on the strength of one game - so meh, wouldn't worry about the crap if there's genuinely even one you fancy trying in each collection. I'm excited for Firehawk, which I played on the ZX Spectrum as Operation Gunship, for example and I sincerely doubt many other people are!

Might hop over to Amazon and pre-order the Vs in spite of the delays, would rather trust a random guy in a van than the postal system in December!

Some early reviews of VS are starting to pop up.

I do like the idea of the system (and the dual cartridge thing just tickles my funny bone), the prices are good and the Arcade Carts are good step up, but I'm still kinda waiting for a really interesting game to hit it.

I think the arcade collections are really neat, the CodeMasters collection is pretty decent, and I'm really looking forward to that Renovation cart. They're due to announce a few more in the next month or so I believe.

Another review. And another video reveals the system has some hidden games unlockable by button combos or having specific cartridges in the slots. Kinda cool, reminds me of having different cartridges in an MSX to unlock different things.
